Cumberland County Public Library Staff

Have a specific question? Need to know who to contact? Take a look at the staff overviews below.




New Program: We will be offering a “Walk Across Kentucky” program for any home-school family that would like to join us! Our kickoff for this program will be Tuesday, September 13 at 1:00 at the library!

Upcoming Children’s Programs: Giddy-up and Get Ready for Kindergarten! This program will highlight those skills necessary to make the most of Kindergarten with activities, songs, and stories that intentionally pinpoint a new skill each week! If you are interested, we will begin the new schedule in September. Keep an eye out for more information!

If you are the parent, guardian, or caretaker of a young child ages 0-3 years and would be interested in programming, just for them, please fill out our survey at Thank you!

We are looking to initiate a traveling story time for the children of Cumberland County! We realize that sometimes it’s hard to get out with young children, so we would like to bring the bookmobile and our children’s outreach coordinator, Mrs. Barbara Booher, to your neighborhood! If you would be interested in having the bookmobile offer story time in your neck of the woods, please call us at (270) 864-2207 and ask for Terry, Barbara, or Paige.
